My Dad happens to be a good Medical Doctor, a Consultant Ob/Gy. He might not have excelled in other aspects of life but being a knowledgeable Medical Doctor is what he is known for. At a time his fame and popularity spread far and wide to different states in Nigeria and beyond, however his popularity did not equate to accumulation of money. He is quite a simple man.
Anyways, I learnt a lesson from him quite early in life. He told me that while he was in Medical school, the Senior Medical Doctors in his unit would leave all the patients for him to take care of, and he did so to the best of his ability and I think by attending to those patients and learning from his mistakes and overcoming them was what made him a good Medical Doctor.
In life challenges are thrown at us and the more challenges we overcome, by learning from them, making mistakes and overcoming them, the stronger and wiser we become an additional blessing to move on to the next challenge.
“May your road be rough”
it might seem like a curse but it is actually a blessing to make you stronger and wiser.
May God give us the grace to overcome our adversities in our quest to Master Life. May we remember to use the lessons we have learnt along the way to overcome the challenges we encounter so we truly become Masters of our lives.
So do not run away from temptations and trials but embrace them for it is what makes us better. “Students on the path” understand this and anyone who wants to be successful in life knows this to be true, challenges are necessary.
“…lead us Oh God when we are passing through temptations but deliver us from every evil. Amen”
( and not “…lead us not into temptation..”. Even the Pope corrected the translation error, yet people, even Catholics still pray the wrong prayer)
So I say to you, may your road be rough and may God give you the grace to overcome them and to understand the lesson to learn from the challenge. So Mote It Be.
Remain focused and always keep your desired result in view, in your mind’s eye and you shall overcome. Create a vision board if you do not know how to visualize and place the vision board with ideals, ideas and places and things you would like to acquire and the person you really want to be. Look at your vision board every morning.
